Rapper says he's seen Drake's lyrics courtesy of his alleged ghost-writer Quentin Miller
Rapper Meek Mill has claimed that a ghost writer who writes Drake‘s lyrics for him, slipped him the words to latest single ‘Summer Sixteen‘ before Drake aired it on his Apple Beats 1 radio show last night (January 30).
Mill dropped ‘War Pain’, the final track from his new EP ‘4/4 Part 2’, during his rival’s OVO Sound Radio programme just minutes after Drake premiered the first single from his forthcoming album ‘Views From The 6’.
The controversy arises from the content of both songs. Each depicts a scenario in which the two are staying at the same hotel in Toronto. Mill later claimed insider knowledge enabled him to mimic Drake’s lyrics in an Instagram post that revealed “The ghost writer told me!”
Meek’s track also anticipates Drake comparing himself to Jay-Z – “I used to wanna be on Roc-A-Fella” – and also seems to predict his attempted put-downs of fellow Canadian artist Tory Lanez.
It is not the first time he has accused his former collaborator of allowing others to write his lyrics for him. The pair have traded diss-tracks back and forth recently, and earlier this month Mill repeated his convictions that Drake uses a ghost writer in a verse on ‘I’m Da Plug Freestyle’ from his ‘4/4’ EP.
Quentin Miller, who is credited as a co-writer on several of Drake’s songs, has denied claims that he is the artist’s ‘ghost-writer’ after hip-hop DJ Funkmaster Flex aired an alleged “reference track” from him which features many of the same lyrics later featured in Drake’s ’10 Bands’.
Drake recently announced his hotly anticipated fourth studio album ‘Views From The 6’ would be released in April.
